Thanks for the nice words.
I actually made this some time ago, and today I rearranged the stuff I had on it. I wanted better order. Hanging earrings on one side, Earrings with posts on another place on the lace.
You should have seen what a similar thing looked like on ebay and somebody wanted $40. I said to myself "I could make one for under $2.00 and be twice the size. And I took a walk to the fabric store near where I live.
I picked out a pretty piece of lace. I should make it shorter. But the stuff you can put on this thing is amazing. I put more hooks on either side and I have my gold jewelry (necklaces I mean) hanging on one side and the silver stuff on the othr side.
You saw how (on the right side), all my earrings are nicely put. I can't lose any more earrings. That, in itself is a bonus. on the little hook things (on top of the hanger), well I put my rings. I mean, where can you get one BIG thing that you can put ALL your stuff on, keep it in plain sight, etc.
I have it on a hook on the wall. And especially during the warm months when I can just put on a pretty skirt and blouse, and then I look at this thing on the wall and just lift off what I want to wear.
I had two jewerly boxes, each had 3 drawers. I still couldn't keep everything straight, and all my necklaces got tangled. Drove me nuts.
I would patent this if I could but honestly it cost me seventy five cents to whip up.
I think this could be a fun family project on a rainy day. Get the grandkids invovled. Get them to bring in their FUN jewelry. It could teach them to keep their stuff nice and neat and when they grow up, they can make a new one.
I woudn't give this up for all the tea in china. I brought it around the corner and showed my friends and some strangers stopped me in the street once and said "where did you buy that, where can I buy one?" I laughed out loud and said "go and buy some lace and glue it to one of your hangers".
Who says I'm get old and feeble???? lol
